Google Research

Philip Pham


I am currently a software engineer at Waymo, where I apply machine learning to motion planning. Before, I worked in Google Research. My research focused on increasing model capacity and understanding inductive biases of neural networks. Natural language processing (NLP) was the main application area. Previously at Google, I worked on internal web applications. I studied mathematics at Duke University (B.S.) and University of Pennsylvania (M.A.) and statistics at the University of Washington.
